Thank you, that was a great read!! Last september I bought a book written by Stuart McRobert called "Beyond Brawn". I thought that the book was and is a great book and I have tried to train based of thoughts from that book. That John Christy-text seemed very much of a same kind of philosophy! I will continue to do my two times a week training with "mass" exercises and keep on eating enough protein and surplus calories.

I have Beyond Brawn as well.

It's always wise to listen to your body and to start simple. You can always get more complex if things aren't working.

Good advice here only thing i would say is do light recovery work on your extra home day, stretching, foam rolling, some rotators cuff movements etc...

For any one who doesn't know Kilo to pound conversion just multiply the kilo amount times 2.2 for its result in lbs.

Routine looks very solid!

Thanks. I have two stretching days, wednesday and saturday. It seems to work well this way.

Yesterday I tried my current 1-rep maxes. Progression so far:

19.5.2009:
Bench, 75kg
Standing military press, 52.5kg
Squat, 70kg
Deadlift, 105kg

6.11.2009:
Bench, 97.5kg
Standing military press, 62.5kg
Squat, 90kg
Deadlift, 135kg

19.3.2010:
Bench, 110kg
Standing military press, 72.5kg
Squat, 110kg
Deadlift, 160kg

In squat, which is very difficult exercise for me, I only count squats where my upper thigh goes to parallel at the bottom. Im quite happy about progression so far.

That's a great improvement in under a year. About 10 pounds a month on big lifts. Awesome job. You'll be over 400 pounds on squat and deadlift in no time at all.

Deadlift seems MUCH easier than squat for me but I think that now I have got my squatting technique good enough so I can really concentrate on progressing weight-wise. Yes, Im really happy how things have gone so far. First time I was at gym 21.4.2009 and in the summer there was a July without training. It seems that two times a week concentrating only in "big" exercises works for me although some of my friends go there 5 times a week to pump their biceps and wonder why Im not doing the same...

400 pound in a squat would be fantastic but it takes quite a lot of time still... Deadlift is not very far though.
